clevite is a brand of bearings but i've decided to go with all mitsubishi stuff. Some say clevite are better, some say OEM. No one has ever had an issue with mitsu ones and I know they are dead nuts the right size with the new crank. Clevite are slightly cheaper as well but only by ~$30 IIRC.

I'll keep everyone posted as well as do my best to keep the website up to date with pictures, prices and part numbers. Now I'm waiting on the pistons and rods from Marco in the land of floppyheads. Pistons should be here in ~2 weeks and then the block machine work can be finished save clearancing for the rods.

Any who are doing a stroker motor (or those who have done them) please keep us up to date.

Problems you run across...

How much difference it makes in the end...

What you would do differently...

Also anyone from New England doing one?? I would love to look at the project in progress...
